Effect of visual adaptation on judgement of and satisfaction with body size in 18 to 25 year olds with high body dissatisfaction

This study investigated the effects of visual adaptation to over-, under- or neither over- nor under-weight images of women on perceived own size, in 18 to 25 year olds with high body dissatisfaction. Healthy adult women (n = 93), with normal BMI (range 18-25 kg/m2) and high baseline body dissatisfaction, were randomised to be visually adapted to photographs of women, altered to appear either over-, under- or neither over- nor under-weight.
